Meet the Superintendent

Dr. John Mehrle was named Superintendent of South Dearborn Community School Corporation in May of 2012. Since that time, he has been working hand in hand with the School Board and Administrators to bring about positive change to the school corporation, including advancements in academics and technology.

An Evansville, Indiana native, Mehrle had his first teaching job at South Dearborn in 1992, where he taught both Spanish and Social Studies. He left to become principal at Eastern Greene High School in Bloomfield Indiana. He later returned to South Dearborn as an associate principal for four years. He then spent three years as assistant superintendent at South Ripley and was later named Superintendent at South Ripley Community Schools in 2010 prior to returning to South Dearborn.
